Khroniki (Chronicles)

Sergey Konkov/TASS
This bar was conceived by the group of city’s best journalists as an artsy Leningrad vodka house, a thing of the past that never existed. Over the years it has become a genuine St. Petersburg institution. Writers, philosophers, journalists, musicians, actors and clowns of all ages sit around with local speciality, Free Ingria cocktail, and classic anchovy sandwiches.
